Disklok (iro £100) are good, also I've heard Stoplock pros (iro £50) are good too

Anything visual is likely to have the would be thief move on to the next target, but nothing is 100% theft proof

I've always used Stoplocks - but if Fiestas are getting nicked in your area, the Disklock might be a better idea!!

Am I right in thinking that some locks may be viewed favourably by insurers and will, if used, knock a bit off your insurance? I think it's something to do with the Thatcham rating of the lock.

If is keyless start its apparently easy, break drivers window, plug into OBD port and start car, drive off.

I use a disklok as a visible deterrent but if they want your car that badly they can break into the house.

What size Disklok do you use, SMALL?

I was thinking about ordering one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stoplock-134-66-Steering-Wheel-Airbag/dp/B001WJRW0E/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1424340578&sr=8-3&keywords=steering+wheel+lock

What do you think? It should at least be a visual deterrent if nothing else.

Those type stop locks are weak as chips, invest in a stop lock pro or disklok :)

Like this one?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stoplock-149-00-Steering-Wheel-Thatcham/dp/B003S51WII/ref=pd_cp_auto_1

And I wonder if that will fit, some reviews saying it doesn't fit some cars.

Get a tracker fitted.

That's probably a good idea too, how much would a decent one cost?

Could try something cheap like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tracker-Vehicle-Theft-Protection-System-Black/dp/B003XDN58K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1424354273&sr=8-1&keywords=car+tracker

Looks a bit complicated though, and you're right mark it doesn't prevent theft. Although it can supposedly be wired up so it can cut out the engine. I suppose if it's well designed it could be put into a secure mode where it cuts the engine if the car is moved more than a few meters, so then they'd need a crane to steal it lol.

That's the badger, and it does fit a mk7.5 at least - I've got one, but I've just upgraded to a disklok, so if you want my old one you're welcome to it if you fancy a trip to Gloucestershire :)

Tbh I was seriously looking at trackers and fact they can remotely immobilise the engine with some

But the fact they can be easily ripped out and / or as a pp said you get the car back if they haven't after it's been thrashed - is it really worth it?

You can spend thousands on security and they will still take it if they really want it, you should take what ever steps you see fit, whether it's a cheap steering wheel lock or locking the port away or spending £600 on a alarm that disables the port.

Ignoring the issue and blaming ford when it goes missing isn't the best option.
